Denmark, Israel, Nigeria and Dominican Republic are the countries that I missed... I live in Belgium and Magyar is Hungarian for Hungarian or Hungary (I went 8 times to Hungary, so :D ) and Caecescu gave Romania away for me, but Dominican Republic I couldn't guess.

I did not know the Horn of Africa denotes the region containing the countries of Eritrea, Djibouti, Ethiopia and Somalia. I thought it was just Somalia, but I couldn't think of the name in time anyways.

Is it just me, or does the Horn of Africa refer to the southern tip? If so, Djibouti is in eastern Africa, not the Horn.

No you are referring to South Africa, or the cape of good hope
+1
level 76
Aug 17, 2015
Maybe you're confusing the southern tips of the continents - Cape of Good Hope is associated with Africa (although it's not the southernmost point) and Cape Horn is associated with South America. In any case, "horn" when associated with Africa refers to the "point" (and vicinity) in the northeastern area.

I thought the Horn was the western side where it sticks out. I expected it to be Sao Tome and then was lost. Are you sure it's the eastern side?

What is a nerf herder?

level 61
Jul 19, 2015
It's a Star Wars reference. I believe Leia calls Han a nerf herder as an insult. Nerfs are basically cattle. She's calling him ignorant and low-class. It's also the name of a very mediocre band from the 90s. Kalbahamut likes to make sure everyone always knows how easy things are for him. That, and relentlessly plugging his quizzes.

It is indeed easy: the average score is high and the least guessed answer is at 45%. By the way, I find strange that Dominican Republic is rather low, because there are only two countries on Hispaniola...

Isn't Khyber Pass in Pakistan? I know it 'cause I'm Pakistani. It links Landi Kotal to Peshawar, and only a minute part is in Afghanistan. So it can't be a clue, as the majority is in Pakistan. By the way nice quiz, and that Djibouti clue is actually funny.

Im surprised there isnt any arguing about the clues. In every other quiz people liked to complain. And then it is about facts. What a country is known for is quite subjective. If you'd ask 100 different people you d get 100 different lists.

if it was possible that might be interesting. Putting up a country and see what people think it is famous for.

let me see the first things that come to my mind for some of the countries above.

france-eiffeltower, australia-uluru, denmark-legoland, cuba-cigars.
